Review:
The Tabernacle was important to the Old Testament believer because it was the place where God had said He would meet with man, but the Tabernacle is also very important to the New Testament believer. It provides a picture, a foretelling (prophecy) of Christ, the Messiah, and it also provides us a glimpse of heaven, where one day we will all be worshiping God.

The Tabernacle was build in approximately 1440 BC, and it was the place where God would dwell with His people for 400 years. It was used as a place of worship from the time of the Exodus until the time of King Solomon, when the Temple was built.

Read Exodus 25:31-40

Brass or bronze is the metal which represents judgment (in contrast to gold or silver). The Bronze Altar in the Outer Court of the Tabernacle was the most used piece of furniture in the Tabernacle. It was on this altar that the sacrifices specified by God in the book of Leviticus were made. The Outer Court would have been a very bloody place with the blood of the sacrifices. This blood being spilled was to remind the children of Israel of the price of their sin. A life must be sacrificed to atone for sin.

8. Describe and/or draw a picture of the Bronze (Brass) Altar described in the text and its accessories.

Note: The approximate size of the Bronze Altar in modern measurements was 7.5′ long x 7.5′ wide x 4.5′ high. Exodus 27:6-7 describes how the altar was made “mobile.” After all, every time the children of Israel broke camp, the Tabernacle would have to be broken down and moved.
